Potato Pancakes-Latkes

I made some Potato Pancakes or also known as Latkes for brunch recently. Latkes are eaten in Jewish communities all over the world on the first night of the 8 days Hanukkah celebration. The pancakes are easy to make and they taste great. So, just make some and enjoy the Latkes!

Recipe adapted from The Joy Of Cooking cookbook.

Potato Pancakes-Latkes

(Printable Recipe)


2 Cups Coarsely Grated Peeled Potatoes (Russet variety)
3 Large Eggs, lightly beaten
1 1/2 Tbsp All-Purpose Flour
1 Tbsp Grated Onions
2 Stalk Scallions, chopped
1 1/4 tsp Sea Salt
1/4 Cup Vegetable Oil or Butter


Wrap the grated potatoes in a clean dish towel and wring to squeeze out as much moisture as possible.

Combine the potatoes, eggs, flour, onions, scallions, and sea salt in a large bowl.

Heat the oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Drop spoonfuls of the potato mixture in the skillet, then spread into 3-inch cakes about 1/4 inch thick. Fry until browned on the bottom, reducing the heat to medium, if needed, to prevent scorching. Turn and cook the second side until crisp, 3 to 5 minutes each side. Drain briefly on paper towels. Serve immediately.


  1. Yum, my family loves these. I have actually made them and froze them and my youngest just reheats them in a frypan with a skim of olive oil. Probably not at their best then but he is fine with it.

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up! Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
